Beyond Skinwalker Ranch
Skinwalker Ranch is now ground zero for Unidentified Aerial Phenomena and paranormal research. Since 2020, Dr. Travis Taylor and his investigative team have been working around the clock to collect, analyze and decode as much data as possible. Their experiments have yielded amazing results, but not enough to fully unlock the secret of the ranch. To gain a broader perspective and build larger data sets, the Skinwalker team is expanding their search and pursuing evidence of similar phenomena found at analogous sites around the world.
Next Tuesday, we’re back on the Ranch.
